Mechanic Breakdown

Levinstrike (LC1) (JP)


Tower order: 6-8-2-4 (this is consistent for all strats)

When orbs spawn with numbers, the party will position in between orbs #5 and #7.

Numbered players take note of the number on their head, taking towers in the order above and moving behind the party in order of explosion (2-4-6-8).

Non-numbered players will stay grouped with the party and look for the blue icon (defamation) above their head. When the first defamation appears, that player will run to the other side of the arena diagonal between the other two orbs (to the wall) and return to the party after the AOE resolves.

After the second defamation resolves, the party will swap sides and sit between the orbs on the opposite side (between #1 and #3) and the rest of the party will resolve their mechanics the same way, just mirrored.

Levinstrike (LC1) (Krile)


Tower order: 6-8-2-4 (this is consistent for all strats)

When orbs spawn with numbers, the party will position infront of orb #5 and will rotate towards orb #7. Party will rotate from #5 to #7 and continuing, the defamations will rotate from #1 to #3 continuing. The orbs can be in either clockwise or counter-clockwise configuration.

The first number explosion will take their bait out in the opposite direction the party is rotating. As each orb gets kicked, the tower bait goes into the tower, and the party rotates to the next orb. Each defamation will go out to the corresponding orb opposite of the party.

Levinstrike (LC1) (Split/Mario Kart)


This is the exact same as Krile strat except the non-numbered players all wait at the #1 orb and the player to get defamation stays at the wall while the other non-numbered players rotate and repeat until all are resolved.

Chimeric Succession (LC2) (Sleepo)


Players marked #1 and #2 go NW and NE to the wall.
Note: this is usually determined by the placement of the waymarkers; odds to 1, evens to 2 or 4, depending if waymars start NE with 4>1>2>3 or 1>2>3>4. Clarify with your group when waymarks are placed.

Party stacks South while the #3 and #4 players stay near the middle of the arena, then swap with #1 and #2 respectively. The party will bait the front/rear outside of the arena.

I just rotated the original sleepo raidplan... you get the idea.
